Why has she not worked since the Debutante?? Is she getting a break or is there a physical issue?
  • Goblin · Don't know, but she was pointing to the Schuylerville on 7/18 per Calhoun interview with BH right after the Debutante, so something must have changed. · 30 minutes ago

She may be good, but she is not the best.
what could have been another unfortunate horse being sidelined unable to see his true potential.
He is targeting, as his final start, the $1M Sprint Classic at Flemington in AUS on Nov. 8th. There, he'll face my best mate Lankan Rupee. What a meet up!
Wins the Parx Dash Handicap yet again!

From Gulfstream: "Atreides, a 3-year-old son of Medaglia d'Oro and half-brother to Dreaming of Julia, who won the 2013 Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2) by 21 3/4 lengths, left quite an impression Saturday when breaking his maiden at first asking. 'To be honest, that's one of the best horses I've ever ridden," said jockey Edgard Zayas, who was carried to a 5 1/4 length victory by Atreides in 1:08.69. "That's a really classy horse.' Owned by Stonestreet Stable and trained by Marty Wolfson, Atreides, won for fun after going by the pacesetter and runner-up Back to Seattle entering the stretch. Atreides is out of Dream Rush, who won the Prioress (G1), Test (G1), and was second in the Acorn (G1)."

Wins the Great Lady!
Price is more than fair on this filly in the Great Lady M. 6-1-4-3
Ohh there singing praises with this one great win
Slade Power completes the G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes/G1 Darley July Cup double with a win in the July Cup at Newmarket(July). Last horse to complete the double was Coolmore's Starspangledbanner back in 2010.

  • jonquil · He was really fantastic! I was thrilled to see his final race end in success and I'm looking forward to his stallion career. As for Lethal Force, I forgot all about him, too, until you mentioned you'd forgotten about him, haha. I think it's easier to remember Starspangledbanner right now because what progeny he's managed to get have started and are definitely impressing everyone with their performances. · 3 hours ago
Looks tough to beat in the 11th at Arlington, but I also like the firster Wind Dust. $5 ex box 4-10

Meet Kevin Kerstein 

Long story short, I took the long road getting involved in the industry. I did not get into horse racing until 2008 when I came to Louisville for college.

I'm originally from outside of Philadelphia and attend college at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky. Since I was 15 I was involved with working in radio and TV. I first covered horse racing at the 2011 Kentucky Derby and my passion just continues to grow. Let the early mornings begin and the Derby fever heat up as we hit the backside to get the exclusive stories leading up to the first Saturday in May.
